About us

Who we are:

Levine & Bazelon, S.C. is the only law firm in Wisconsin dedicated to the complex practice of community association law.

For more than 30 years, our attorneys have assisted condominium and homeowners association boards with corporate governance, assessment recovery, civil litigation counsel, advice on fair housing issues, and covenant enforcement, interpretation and drafting.

What we do:

We practice what is known in our profession as community association law. A community association is a group of real property owners who mutually obligate themselves through reciprocal covenants (recorded promises) on issues related to the use of their properties. The owners are organized through an association which typically has the power to assess funds for its lawful activities and to enforce reasonable covenants. The two common forms of community associations in Wisconsin are condominiums and homeowner associations. There are also a few cooperatives in Wisconsin. Helping an association navigate the issues of fair housing law, covenant interpretation, amendment and enforcement, budgeting, collections and use restrictions; advising on relationships with the developer and builder, with the municipality and with other owners, with local, state and national governments; these are some of the things we do.

We will, when possible, offer a probable budget for any particular task. We are consumers, too, and we know that bills should not be mysterious or uncontrolled. We do not require monthly “retainer fees” from Associations. We keep you association’s governing documents on file and are ready when you call!

Where we practice:

Our practice is state-wide and we are proud to represent condominium and homeowner associations from LaCrosse to Milwaukee, from Door County to Kenosha, Racine, Waukesha, Washington, Walworth and Ozaukee counties, in Brookfield, Pewaukee, Lake Country, Madison and Dane and in Central Wisconsin. We love this state, and would like to visit you!
